Our objective is to report a case of ACN in a young man who had developed premature atherosclerotic vascular disease and required intermittent hemodialysis support. His renal biopsy showed diffuse cortical necrosis. Subsequently, 2 weeks after the renal insult, he developed a cardioembolic stroke and was anticoagulated with low-molecular-weight heparin. Thrombophilia screen revealed elevated serum homocystein and he was ...

Although there is a large volume of literature regarding the definition and epidemiology of. Type 2 diabetes nephropathy (T2DN). There has been a paucity of data focused on the rate of transition of T2 DN. Based on our personal observation a certain percentage of our incident end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients from T2DN experienced a rapid decline of renal function. Their rapid decline nature of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 46 to 60 mL/min per 1.73m2 per year have far exceeded the KD...

Background Cases of non-traumatic splenic rupture are rare and entails a potentially grave medical outcome. Hence, it is important to consider the differential diagnosis of a non-traumatic splenic rupture in patients with acute or insidious abdominal pain. The incidence of rupture in Diffuse B-cell non-Hodgkin Lymphoma is highly infrequent (Paulvannan and Pye, Int J Clin Pract 57:245–6, 2003; Gedik et el., World J Gastroenterol 14:6711–6716, 2008), despite reports of various non-traumatic spleni...
